When it comes to Dyson vacuum cleaners, you can definitely say that we are big fans – the brand tops the list for some of our best tested machines. But let’s face it: they are also quite expensive. Needless to say, it is almost always worth waiting for a good deal on one of these top models before taking the plunge. And thankfully, Dyson is offering one right now on its popular V7 Absolute Wireless Stick Vacuum.

The vacuum normally sells for $ 349.99, but you can now take it for $ 299.99. In addition, when you order, you get to choose up to $ 75 free tools with the device, including two for spot cleaning and an accessory bag or two for cleaning upholstery and hard-to-reach areas and an accessory bag.
Although we have not tested the Dyson V7 Absolute, we tested the newer V8 model ($ 449.99) and called it “near the top of wireless vacuum technology.” It was able to pick up 88% of the dirt we put down for it in our tests. Aside from a longer, 40-minute battery life to the V7’s reported 30, slightly more powerful maximum suction (115 AW versus 100 AW) and a slightly larger trash can, the V8 is virtually identical to the V7 and comes with many of the same useful attachments.
However, the V7 is not only cheaper, it also takes less time to charge (3.5 hours to five) and weighs almost half a kilo less (just over 5 pounds), making it easier to lift and clean the roof area. Customers definitely seem to like it: It has a 4.3-star rating from more than 350 Dyson customers.
Both machines have a powerful, direct-cleaning head that can pick up dirt that has been painted deep in floors or carpets. These vacuum cleaners also have rubbish that makes it easy to empty via a pull lever. The washable filter lasts a lifetime, according to the company, so they will no longer buy replacement filters every month – or even every year – either. That alone is reason enough to jump on board!
In addition to the above bonus tools, you get lots of other accessories that will make cleaning a variety of surfaces a breeze when you buy the V7. There is a soft, woven nylon and antistatic carbon fiber cleaner head for hard floors, a motor head, a mini motor head for tight spaces (such as a car), a mini soft dust brush to gently remove dust from objects (such as screens and keyboards) , a combination tool for easy switching between surfaces and a slitting tool for cleaning around edges and getting into tight spaces. You also get a docking station and charger.
As a longtime fan of Dyson vacuum cleaners (I own both a container and a wireless stick model from the brand), I can also attest that it is super easy to switch from one attachment to the next, with every click in place.
I have always told friends that Dysons are worth the money, not only for the powerful suction that can handle all kinds of clutter, but also for the elegant and sexy design and the intuitive operation. And thanks to this agreement you can get all this and more – for less.
